Second-Degree Accelerated Baccalaureate Program in Nursing - Progression Policy

Nursing courses must be taken in the sequence indicated in the curriculum plan. A student must earn at least a grade of C in each nursing course before progressing in the nursing sequence.

  • The Leadership and Evidence-Based Practice course is a sequential course that integrates and builds student skills in research, leadership, and knowledge of professional nursing and nursing issues. A minimum grade of C will be required at each level that the course is offered.
  • Failure of a nursing course in the Second-degree program results in the student's dismissal from the program. The student can re-apply to the Second-degree program for the following year. There is no guarantee that a spot will be available.
  • If the student re-applies, only one nursing course may be repeated, and it may be repeated only one time. A second nursing course failure results in final dismissal from the program.
  • Courses required for the baccalaureate degree curriculum cannot be taken on a pass/not pass option.
